Hastings Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics covers many fields, and presents the latest development of knowledge and science in the early 20th century. The volumes were issued in increments, vol.1 in 1908; vol. 2,3,4 in 1910; then 1912, 1914, 1915, 1916, 1917, 1918, 1922, and the Index in 1926 as vol. 13. Hastings and Selbie edited the first 5 vols., and Gray assisted in the rest. It is curious that volume 11 is still missing as a free download file, and after searching for days and many hours, it appears that it has been lost in digital confusion. The original volume numbers are in Roman Numerals, vol. 2 = II and vol. 11 = XI, as can been seen in several links, including Internet Archives, vol. 2 has been confused with vol. 11, and the true XI has been lost somewhere. Perhaps this note will bring forward a pdf file to complete the set for free use and access. mjm,2010. ((Again tried to find a free copy of vol. 11 and failed. March, 2011. mjm.))

Added Volume II Hastings Encyclpaedia Religion & Ethics
I have added volume 11 to the set, thus completing it. Thanks to the reviewer for alerting us of its availability; and of couse thanks to Internet Archive and the Boston Library for its scanning. I have gathered the Archive set and added volume 6 to complete it and will submit them hereafter. The blurred or defects of the scanned pages are unfortunate but not avoidable at times. mjm.
